International Journal of Fashion Studies (Journal)

ISSN 20517106 , ONLINE ISSN 20517114

The International Journal of Fashion Studies is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal that fosters the worldwide diffusion of fashion studies. Published bi-annually, the journal invites articles on all aspects of fashion as a social, cultural, historical and aesthetic phenomenon. Although the journal is open to contributions submitted in English, its principal aim is to be a platform for fashion studies developed by non-English speakers.

English being a lingua franca of the international academic world, much of the most influential – not least as it is the most visible - literature has been produced in the English speaking world. Indeed, access to a global readership is premised on the submission to academic journals of texts written in English. However, over the years a meaningful corpus of fashion studies has developed in other regions that have just as much of a tradition as Anglophone countries in costume, clothing, and fashion practice as well as in the study of social and cultural phenomena. But this corpus is not written in English and, because of language obstacles, has not reached an international audience. Scholars who are not English speakers and have neither the time nor the resources to produce texts in that language may be excluded from current debates on fashion, clothing and appearance. The richness of their material can go unacknowledged, which can only deprive the field of Anglophone fashion studies of significant findings and insights. This is at odds with both the global nature of the fashion system and the call, in much contemporary academia, for the fostering of international networks and research.
 
The editorial team of the International Journal of Fashion Studies strongly believes that the reception of contributions from countries with less visibility in English language academic publications has been long overdue. It has therefore set as its main aim the disseminating of the work of non English scholars written in the original language of their authors. To do so an innovative process of peer-reviewing has been designed. In agreement with Intellect, all articles can be submitted to the journal in the native language of their author and will be reviewed in that language. It is only once the article has been accepted for publication that it will be translated into English. Moreover, the work will be available in the original language on the publisher’s website. It is indeed very important not to lose the richness of the text written in the native language.
 
Moreover the International Journal of Fashion Studies aims to support theoretical and methodological discussion across the social sciences, the arts and humanities. Indeed it is the journal’s conviction that understanding fashion means approaching it from various perspectives. Only then will the complex experiences and practices of its individual and institutional agents be grasped.
 
By opening up the field of fashion studies to non English speakers the International Journal of Fashion Studies will not only shed new light on some key existing themes of the international debate (such as gender, sustainability, globalisation, etc.) but it will also bring to the fore topics and issues heretofore unattended.

In the context of an academic literature dominated, in the field of fashion studies, by the publication of papers peer-reviewed in English, the work of those researchers who have neither the resources nor the time to translate it for consideration can go unacknowledged. With much research and debate taking place on the globalisation of the fashion system as well as on its non-western manifestations it is time to broaden the field to more non-English writers. This is the goal of the International Journal of Fashion Studies.
 
To that effect, all articles can be submitted in the first language of their author and will be reviewed in that language. At the moment we can ensure the reviewing of articles written in the following languages: Danish, English, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbo-Croat, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish. As our network is constantly developing, the list of languages covered is widening. Therefore we are also interested in submissions written in other languages.
 
The journal will pay particular attention to the theoretical rigour of the submissions and the quality of engagement with the empirical data gathered, whether it is through quantitative or qualitative methods. Topics of interest might include: globalization; innovation; religion; gender; ethnicity; sustainability; systems of production, consumption and dissemination; communication; new technologies; digital culture. Particular attention will be given to new and heretofore unattended areas of enquiry.
 
Articles of no more than 8,000 words in length can be submitted directly to the principal editors or through the website. Please refer to the Intellect style guide before sending your article.
 
Prospective guest editors are welcomed and may approach Intellect or the editors with a proposal for a themed issue. Prospective book reviewers and publishers should approach the editors directly.
